Forget Tarkarli beach.... stay at Chivla

4.0 of 5 bubblesReviewed 6 May 2013
A perfect homestay right on the beach. Highly recommended for families. The owners presented great hospitality & were always available. Although we visited during summers, it was freaking breezy right from check-in till check-out. The best part was, get up in the morning & you are greeted by the roaring sea waves with cool & strong breeze really making your day & trip off course. The sea food & other dishes ordered were served within the committed time & moreover tasted delicious. Cleanliness of the room was upto the mark & tastefully designed inside. The clean Chivla beach is 'C' shaped with concrete triangle rocks laid thru-out & a lane passing parallel, completely resembling Marine drive & is very safe for swimming. Also, compared to Tarkarli it is much much closer to Malvan Jetty where you can enjoy scuba diving, snorkelling & visit Sindhudurg Fort. Felt home away from home & value for money considering the location & hospitality. Will definitely visit again with both friends & family.

Room Tip: The red non ac rooms are much bigger than the blue ac rooms.

    Its early morning (6 AM or something), you are in bed, slowly getting awake, then you hear the sound of waves in sea. You get up, open the curtains of the window and see the beautiful sea in front of you. And within minutes you start enjoying the sea waves.

    That's Mayekar's holiday home. We had a 4 day stay there and every morning experienced the sea waves. The rooms are clean and sufficient. AC and hot water supply is available. Television with cable, yes it was there in the room, but we didn't turn it on. Why should one go to Malvan to see the television ? We were enjoying the beach and sea most of the times. Mr. and Mrs. Mayekar attend you well and provide you all the details. You can enjoy the sea food with Malvani taste there. A peaceful destination, where you can enjoy vacation and relax.

    Thanks,
    Pravin Mukhedkar

    A very good location damn in front of the sea, we enjoyed the stay tremendously , though both rooms are adjacent to each other we could hear the talk of other guests clearly ( that has to be taken care by the owner) Frankly we did not enjoy the food , i wouldnt recomend though the taste was usual like a malvani cuisine but the service was not satisfactory. The beach was out of reach due to boulders being placed for prevention of erosion (like on MARINE DRIVE ), i hope the work is completed keeping in mind about the tourist. I wish Mr. Mayekar good luck for his future projects . MOVVA VENKATESH ,MUMBAI

    Room tip: Red rooms are good, right on the beach

    We stayed at the resort in June 2012 first week. Amazing location just near sea. One can watch the roaring sea siting on the bed. Homely food was too good. Mayekars give a homely service. You don't feel you are in a hotel. Best possible choice to enjoy at Malvan - P. R. Kulkarni, Sangli
